Ep 10: The Case Of The Joker's Crime Circus

Welcome back to another episode of I Am Gotham, the show that explores Batman history and dives into what makes Batman so great. In this episode, Martin talks about Batman #4 from Winter of 1940 with four new stories, THe Case of the Joker's Crime Circus, Blackbeard and the Yacht Society, Public Enemy Number 1 Starts Jail Sentence, and Touchdown For Justice. This issue is fascinating for Bat-history afficionados as it's the first appearance of Gotham City, and sets up many of the tropes we come to known and love in Batman lore. Martin also answers a listener email and talks a little bit about the structure of the show. Thanks for listening!
